The Wolf and the Crane

Posted by kathavarta on May 16, 2015

A feeding wolf got a small bone stuck in his throat and, in terrible pain, begged the other animals for help, promising a reward.

At last the Crane agreed to try and, putting its long bill down the Wolf’s throat, loosened the bone and took it out.

But when the Crane asked for his reward, the Wolf replied, “You have put your head inside a wolf’s mouth and taken it out again in safety; that ought to be reward enough for you.”

Lesson: “You can’t make a good deal with a bad person.”

The Lion, the Panther and the Fox Who Went Hunting

Posted by kathavarta on May 16, 2015

One day the lion, the panther and the fox went hunting together, and it was agreed that whatever they caught would be shared between them. After lulling a large stag, they decided to have a hearty meal. The lion asked the panther to divide the spoils, and after the panther made 3 equal parts, he told his friends to take their pick, whereupon the lion, in great indignation seized the panther and tore him to pieces. He then told the fox to divide the spoils, and the fox gathered everything into one great pile except for a tiny portion that he reserved for himself.

“Ah, friend,” asked the lion, “Who taught you to divide things so equally?”

“I needed no other lesson,” replied the fox, “than the panther’s fate.”

Lesson – Better to learn from the mistakes of others than commit your own
Mental Model – Vicarious Learning

Story of Four Candles

Posted by kathavarta on February 22, 2009

Yesterday night, my wife has send me wonderful inspiring e-mail (I am thankful to you), it is short in size, but, very long in message. She (and me) does not know the creator of this great message, but do not worry, just let you know, useful stuff is always created by God, so we all should will say thanks to God for this lovely message, Please enjoy.

The four candles burns slowly. The ambiance was so soft you could hear them talking.

The first one said, “I am Peace! however nobody can keep me lit. I believe, I will go out.”

It’s flame rapidly diminishes and goes out completely.

The second one says, “I am Faith! Most of all, I am no longer indispensable, so it doesn’t make any sense that I stay lit any longer.”

When it finished talking, a breeze softly blew on it putting it out.

Sadly, the third candle spoke in its turn: “I am love! I haven’t got the strength to stay lit. People put me aside and don’t understand my importance. They even forget to love those who are nearest to them.”

And waiting no longer it goes out.

Suddenly…

A child enters the room and sees three candles not burning.

“Why are you not burning? You are supposed to stay lit till the end.”

Saying this, the child begins to cry.

Then the fourth candle said: “Don’t be afraid, while I am still burning we can re-light the other candles, I am Hope!”

With shining eyes, the child took the candle of hope and lit the other candles.

THE FLAME OF HOPE SHOULD NEVER GO OUT FROM YOUR LIFE.

…and that each of us can maintain Peace, Faith, Love and Hope!!!

Have a nice Day.

Chatur Yuga (Four Yuga)

Posted by kathavarta on January 27, 2009

Yuga is the time period in which the universe is divided into, this time period is also calculated on the basis of number of years of Gods. One God year is approximately 432 human years.

(1) SATYA or KRITA YUGA

Length of Satya Yuga: 1,728,000 human years/ 4,000 years of the Gods.

This is said to be the golden age when Gods used to live with humans as humans were pure at heart. The life of people was filled with happiness and joy and they used live on the Amrit/Nectar provided by the Mother Earth. The mental faculties of the people were developed to such an extent that the powers possessed by them were nearly equivalent to Gods.

It was a period when every individual was endowed with the chausatt (64-Sixty four) Riddhis, ashtang (8-Eight) Siddhis and Nav (9-Nine) Nidhis. It may be strange but there were no climates, no day and night and the human nature was as pure as Gold. Every individual used to do dhyana and was not afraid of the cycle of life and death. In this period, people used to live for thousands of years and that is the reason they were called chirayu (eternal life). The sky was roof and the lap of Mother Earth was bed for them.

(2) TRETA YUGA

Length of Treta Yuga: 1,296,000 human years/ 3,000 years of the Gods.

It was a test for the Gods to find out the quantum of purity of the human and for this God created a sense of confusion in the minds of people. This confusion created a void in the minds of people and they began to search for the truth. Gods hid himself from the sight of the people. It was only during this time that the trees and plants appeared, Indra (also known as Purandra, god of rain) created rain and the climates started appearing. The beauty, which had appeared around the Mother Earth fascinated people, and this fascination led to selfishness for possession. People started fighting over the trees, land, etc. This led to creation of houses, villages and cities. People started working on gaining knowledge for finding the truth. The siddhis and riddhis of the human started diminishing and strived hard to achieve those spiritual powers.

Evil natured human with the increase of knowledge started feeling superior. They started claiming themselves to be demigods on the face of earth. The life span of people also reduced considerably. Due to felling of plants and trees for building houses the ecological disbalanced started occurring.

It was during this period that Rig Veda was composed. People started worshipping nature, Indra (Water), Varuna (Air) and Agni (Fire). It was also in this period that human started fearing for life. They also started sacrificing animals and humans to gain material benefits.

(3) DWAPARA YUGA

Length of Dwapara Yuga: 864,000 years/ 2,000 years of the Gods.

By the beginning of this period human had lost nearly every Riddhis and Siddhis gained during the Satya Yuga.

The plants and trees nearly became extinct by now and this caused human to fight over rivers, land and mountains. It was during this period Ayurveda was born, by which people became knowledgeable on the qualities of herbs for curing people.

Due to fighting and over utilisation of the hearbs they too became extinct. People felt the need for finding a solution. During this period the concept of Varnas was developed by Lord Brahma in order to stop the fighting and blessed them with cow and created trees, herbs and animals again.

but people were so corrupt as they found solace in material gains and for achieving these goals they even got their kith and kin sacrificed. Gods disappeared from earth.

this period saw the development of various mantras and tantras dedicated to various Gods. People started organising huge Yagyas for appeasing Gods. Many complicated and difficult techniques for achieving riddhis and siddhis were also developed during this period.

(4) KALI YUGA

Length of this Kali Yuga: 432,000 human years/ 1,000 years of Gods.

Presently we are in this yuga and have completed nearly 5,100 human years. The mind of human beings have been corrupted with material wants to such an extent that they would not hesitate to sell God to earn for their living. People with little knowledge will become incarnation of Gods and they would be asked to worship. These people would have large followers and even will not hesitate to proclaim themselves as Gods.

True worshippers will gain a lot with little efforts in this yuga. What a person might achieve in one month in this yuga would be equivalent to 10 years of efforts in Treta yuga.

When this yuga completes its tenure a new universe would be formed and the cycle would continue again.

Total Time for One Cycle or Manvantara: 4,320,000,000 years.
